Martin shares some REALLY cool stuff

Hello all. Martin here.  I know you must be tired of hearing about HAIR and CLOTHES and all that boring stuff so I decided I would share some REALLY cool stuff.
You can see here some of my collectibles.  
Mostly Star Wars, and Harry Potter.
Oh and by the way, the Harry Potter books are the best EVAR - just sayin.

I have an R2D2 trash can AND a real R2D2 model.

I have BOTH the large and the small Millennium Falcon models.

 I also have this Star Destroyer and an original version X-wing fighter.
This is the type X-wing Luke flew in "A New Hope".

This is my skateboard.  Cool huh?

I also play the guitar. Listen to this riff!
(twang twang)

I have this cool model of Han Solo on a Tauntaun from the ice planet Hoth. 

As well as a Chewbacca and C3PO

I have a real Harry Potter robe.
Oh, this is my dog Buddy - he's cool too.

This is my Hedwig stuffed owl.

And this is a wand I made from a tree branch.
I told you this would be cool, but the best is yet to come!

This is my horse Penny.

Here's Buddy again.  He likes to tag along with Penny and I.

I think I am very lucky to have a horse of my own.
Well, I really share her with all my sisters, but I ride the most,
except for maybe Molly.


Well, that's it.  I hope you enjoyed this post about really cool stuff.

Oh, I almost forgot!
This is my best friend and photographer - Emma.
Julie's a better photographer but she said she was busy.

Emma wanted me to get a picture of her new dress.
(whatever)

Something I NEVER thought I'd do!

This is my Molly.  Most of you know she came from a thrift store
and she was in pretty rough shape. She looked like she had 
been sitting on a shelf gathering dust for years!

I have done a LOT of work on her hair over the years, 
but it just didn't look good. It is SO dry. 
You can see a big short clump that must have been cut at one time.
And I cut off about an inch of her hair 
that I thought was hopelessly damaged. 
I wish I had known then what I know now!

 The older pleasant Co. dolls had such heavy bangs.
Truth be told, Molly looked like she had a mullet. sigh.
I shopped for doll wigs thinking maybe 
I could give her a whole new look?
But, I couldn't do it.  I needed a real 'Molly' wig,

Then I saw this ad on eBay for a genuine Molly wig.
It was uncut and still had shine.
It looked like it was in pretty good shape.
Still, I wasn't sure if I could do it!

BUT I DID!!
 This was the hardest part - taking off Molly's hair!
It actually came off very easy which tells me it was holding on by a thread.

Here is the first try on. You can see how faded her eyebrows are, but
you couldn't tell before because they were covered up by those bangs.

Here she is after I painted some new brows. 
Later I freshened up her lips and cheeks as well.

   Look at Molly now!
The bangs are lighter and her face looks brighter.

 I love her new hair!


Pretty in pink.

Our Generation Retro

I have a confession.  I have not always been very keen on the Our Generation doll clothes.  
BUT, I have seen some items lately that I think are great.
I saw this dress on Pinterest and I fell in love!  


I went to my Target and, as usual, they did not have it.  So I ordered from the website.
This  the 'To a Tea Retro' outfit and I love it.

 I tried it on April first.  She definitely looks good in blue!

Cute straw hat.

 Handkerchief and lace gloves.

 It also comes with this teacup and macaroons.

The pink crinoline matches the pink shoes.

I love the big bow on the collar.

Next I tried it on Grace. 
This blue becomes her as well.

On Grace this dress reminds me of some fabrics I saw in Hawaii.

I remember wearing gloves to church
when I was a little girl.

Very pretty.

I also recently picked up this Retro set.
The OG Park Day Set

It comes with a blanket, radio, sunglasses and a book of poetry. 

The radio plays 6 songs.

The poetry book is empty, but maybe the girls will fill it up?

And these cute sunglasses with a rose on each eye.

Grace is feeling Retro!

Our Harmony Club Doll needs a name

I have decided that we should keep this little girl, but I can't
settle on a name.  Here are some more photos of her to help.
Here she is with Skyler and Emma. 
She looks a little shy to me.

I went over her hair with the wig conditioner spray
again and it looks shinier.

Lily?
Annabelle?

April?
Amelia?

Allysa?
Briana?

Callie?

I keep finding 'A' names, hm.

Any Ideas?

Thank you all for your help.  She is - 

April Briana-Mae
